If you think you'd use it, go ahead get the Nokia 215. It offers a good haul of features for the price, which also happens to be one of the lowest you can pay for a phone anywhere in the world.

My Nokia 215 is only a couple weeks old & came with no instructions. Putting the SIM card in was a nightmare, unless it is positioned in exactly the right spot it fails to work. You are forced to make many attempts. I prefer the SIM holder on my old Nokia, you slot it in place in seconds without difficulties. The clock is not accurate & can't be altered, it's supposed to do this itself but doesn't. The clock is a major feature of any cell phone & much needed. The other features are good & easy to use Less
